Are injections for wrinkles safe for everyone?

Q: I am interested in getting injections to smooth out some wrinkles. I'm a woman of color and wonder if it is safe. Also, what is the cost?

A: Yes it is safe to receive injections for lines and wrinkles even if you have darker skin tones. Although some lasers are not safe on darker skin, Botox and fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Radiesse, are safe for all skin types. Cost depends on how much is needed and can range from $300 to around $1000. We would be happy to see you for consultation and can often do the treatment at the same time if you would like. Our cosmetic consultations are $80 but this cost will be put toward any cosmetic treatment that you receive.
